Nifty story!  Though why anyone would be nostalgic for the Penn Central eludes me...

That car is more of a monument to itself than the railroad. It became a local legend while abandoned on that siding. It wore those colors for decades, so why not leave it that way? Plus, it was built for the NYC. Doesn't make sense to display a Central car along a former Cumberland Valley (later PRR) line. And if anyone is in the area, I highly recommend stopping in. Those folks have done an amazing job with the restoration and have a nice little museum inside.

I always liked the Penn Central. I grew up along the Fort Wayne mainline in a town called Louisville (in Ohio). I used to hear trains all day and all night. Penn Central is what roamed those rails at the time. I was a little too young to remember Pennsy too much. I wish some MTH dealer would do a custom run of Penn Central RS-1's and Premier E-8's (or Atlas if they now own the rights). Sweet video by the way. Thanks for posting.
